I have officially finished my Christmas shopping for the car aficionado in my life after seeing the 1979 Pontiac Trans Am hard drive. This hard drive is modeled after the classic muscle car driven by Burt Reynolds in "Smokey and the Bandit."

The model is 1:18 the size of the actual car and packs 500GB of memory. How Etsy seller Coast2CoastDeals managed to cram a hard drive inside of a model Trans Am is a mystery to me. The only indication that this car is not meant to sit on a shelf is the rear end which has a port for a USB cable. The price for all of this awesomeness is $275, a small price to pay for a functional tribute to one of America's great bygone car makers.
